This hike starts with a descent to Saltpond Bay, then ascends over a ridge and drops down to another beach. After that, it makes the ascent to Ram’s Head, a rocky peninsula perched 150 feet above the sea. From there, there are great 360 views of sea and islands. The hike is not very shaded, and is therefore somewhat hot, but it is definitely worth it.

Loved this trail. Cool pebble beach about half way through. The trek is worth the hike throughout, but my favorite was when we got to the cliffs. Full 360 view. Gorgeous!

Dessert-y landscape and cool once you reach Ramshead.

This was my favorite hike on St. John. Beautiful views, but hold on to your hats, it's windy up there! :-)

Moderate is a good difficulty ranking, with only some steeper sections with switchbacks and rocky. Fantastic panoramic view at Rams Head Peak, southernmost in St John, can see St Croix in the distance. Open to weather, so be prepared for blazing sun or higher winds if stormy.
